For an enthusiastic student, there is always another question to prompt a new level of understanding. That is the outlook that gives me enthusiasm as a mentor. I have enjoyed watching smiles catch on each time that enough guidance leads a student to new realizations, and have been fortunate enough to see this happen regularly as first a US Peace Corps educator in Lesotho and then a substitute teacher/aid in the SAU 24 school district of New Hampshire. I received my Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Northeastern University and therefore focus my tutoring on math. I currently offer tutoring for all middle school levels of math up through pre-calculus. My favorite subject to tutor is pre-calculus, particularly when it combines trigonometry with algebra. When meeting with students, I like to begin with a discussion of their goals and then guide them through a series of practice problems that ultimately covers their challenging areas. As you might have guessed from my opening sentence, I like to respond to their questions with questions whenever appropriate. In my downtime, I like to sing, play guitar, and cook recipes new and old.
